In the late 1800's and early 1900's, the 'Sun Never Set on the British Empire' and the gold Sovereign was minted on every continent but Antarctica. This seven coin mint-mark set commemorates this era in history, offering a coin from each of the seven British Mints (Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, India, Canada, South Africa, and Britain)* in high grade uncirculated condition. Both the India mint and Canada mint Sovereigns are quite rare. The 'I' mint Sovereigns were only minted in 1918, and had a total mintage of just 1.3 million. The 'C' mint Sovereigns were minted predominately in 1911, though also intermittently until 1919. Their total mintage just over 500,000 coins.
*To make a true eight coin set, clients might consider purchase of the South American Sovereign (also know as the Colombian 5 Pesos), minted in Colombia in the early 1900's to the exact weight and specifications of the British Sovereign.
